Natural vaginal delivery always comes with changes around your vagina for-example vagina loosening and vagina tearing.

When you giving birth, your vagina enlarges to allow the baby to pass through but it rarely retracts back to its original position and that why your vagina may loosen a little.

You may witness a little scar on the side of a woman’s vagina if they had a tearing during birth.

Women with loose vaginas are recommended to do Kegels in order to tighten their vaginas.

 3. It grows in size when aroused.

When your vagina isn’t aroused, its 3-4 inches long with is definitely not enough for men who are well endowed.

But when a woman is aroused, the vagina becomes elongated making it possible to take it that huge cock of any guy.

Your vagina is just like maintaining a normal body weight.
